Giant Talon E+ 2 Review

Despite the tightly calculated price of the Talon E+ 2, Giant manages to integrate the battery into the down tube.
At steep sections, the somewhat weak Giant motor requires a lot of initiative from the biker. The Giant SyncDrive Core gives off a well-rounded riding feeling. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the Talon E+ 2 , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Talon E+ 2 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (2000) .

As the bumps get bigger and rougher the average SR Suntour fork limits the downhill fun. The components and the shifting seem less important for Giant. The components used here have a clear potential for improvement after a view at the competitors. The moderate head tube angle provides a good compromise between stability and agility when going downhill. The reach is also right there in the middle ground.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Giant Talon E+ 2

In total, a very good geometry are very good in this price range about 2500€. The Talon E+ 2 is an entry-level all-rounder for tours on forest paths and easy trails with a very good price-performance ratio. Despite its many advantages, the Talon E+ 2 also has a weak side. You have to live with a simple brake system and a weak groupset on this EMTB. Giant gives a warranty of 25 years on the bike.
